NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

No surprise here: defending U.S. Open champion Serena Williams is the top seed at Flushing Meadows this year, the USTA announced.

Rounding out the top five seeds are: (2) French Open finalist Simona Halep of Romania, (3) Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, (4) Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, and (5) French Open champion Maria Sharapova, who won the 2006 U.S. Open.

The tournament will be played at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens from August 25 through September 8.

    No. No, it's not even like that. We're all dancing together to the same song. We're listening through these headphones. It's a dance party. With my headphones on, this D.J. sounds like he might assemble the greatest late-night playlist of all-time. With my headphones off, this party looks really weird.
